Ted Cruz Must Stop Making Unsupported and Inflammatory Accusations About Racial Tension

ted cruz by us senate

Target: Ted Cruz

Demand: Apologize for unfounded remarks about President Obama and race.

Tensions have run high recently in Baltimore and around the country due to the protests and riots after Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man, sustained a spine injury while in police custody that lead to his death. The issue of race is at the forefront of this unrest, and politicians are discussing ways to unify the people and release this tension.

Ted Cruz, Republican candidate for President, was interviewed recently and said that President Obama has “inflamed” racial tensions. He said “He’s made decisions that I think have inflamed racial tensions — that have divided us rather than bring us together. We need leadership that brings us together rather than trying to divide us.”

When asked for specific examples of this, Cruz could not give an answer. He also could not give a specific example of how he would address the issue if he were in office.


Dear Senator Cruz,

In a recent interview, you discussed the racial tension that is all too palpable in the United States today. You said that Barack Obama has “inflamed” those racial tensions instead of bringing the people together. However, when asked for specific examples of how the President has inflamed tensions, you could not give one. You also could not give examples of how you would bring people together as president.

We the undersigned urge you not to make statements about racial tensions if you can not cite specific examples.

  1. Ted Cruz is an evil, lying SOB, that will say ANYTHING for publicity. He is a crazy, immoral, racist narcissist who spreads hatred whenever he opens his big mouth. This jerk has never done anything good for anyone except himself.
    Unfortunately, there are too many people in this country that have followed his example of rampant discrimination against anyone different than themselves–then they have the gall to label themselves Christians. They don’t even know what the Golden Rule means, let alone practice it. Fortunately, there is no chance in hell that he will be elected for the office that he believes he will succeed to in 2016.

  2. Robert Ortiz says:

    The problem with GOP-ers (besides being uptight, holier than thou, nationalist, pro-corporate, money grubbing elitists) is that they believe in having two sets of rules. One set for the people they deem inferior and want to control via legislation that is more about being mean and petty and another set for themselves and their cronies to follow that gives them the freedom to act however they want without any reproach whatsoever.
